Jurassic World IMAX 3D returns to theaters for one-week screening
Sometimes you just have to watch a great action film in IMAX one more time. In response to enormous popular demand, IMAX and Universal Pictures today announced that Universal and Amblin Entertainment’s film, Jurassic World, will receive a special week-long engagement in domestic IMAX 3D theatres beginning Aug. 28.
Since its record-setting global IMAX release on June 12, Jurassic World has become the second-highest-grossing film in IMAX’s history, with $116 million and counting, second only to Avatar.
“Starting with its record-shattering debut in IMAX theatres around the globe, Jurassic World truly has become a cultural phenomenon,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “We’re proud to have been a part of this ground-breaking release and now we look forward to offering audiences another opportunity to experience Jurassic World in IMAX.”
“The extraordinary success of the IMAX release of Jurassic World was driven by audiences who needed to become immersed in every wondrous and heart-racing scene in the film,” said Nick Carpou, President of Distribution, Universal Pictures. “We are proud to partner with IMAX once again to give moviegoers what they have demanded: another chance to see Jurassic World this summer in this incredible format.”
IMAX states in today’s announcement, “The IMAX 3D release of Jurassic World is shown in its digitally re-mastered format, which includes the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.”

Dinosaurs escape into the open, skies and water to engage in an all-out war for survival, and no corner within the world’s greatest theme park is safe anymore.
